The formula to calculate straight line depreciation is: Straight line depreciation = (cost − residual value) / expected useful life Double declining balance method: In this method depreciation the book value of an asset declines every year by the constant depreciation rate and hence the depreciation amounts are larger in the initial periods of asset’s life but becomes relatively smaller in the later years.

Concept introduction:

Straight-line Depreciation:

Depreciation is done by allocating the cost of the fixed assets other than land to expense over the useful life of the asset. The most commonly used method of depreciation is straight line method. In this method every year until the useful life of the asset, equal amount of assets cost to depreciation expense is allocated. The formula to calculate straight line depreciation is:

Straight line depreciation = (cost − residual value) / expected useful life

Double declining balance method:

In this method depreciation the book value of an asset declines every year by the constant depreciation rate and hence the depreciation amounts are larger in the initial periods of asset’s life but becomes relatively smaller in the later years. This method is applied for those assets which become obsolete due to technological changes.

Units of production method:

In this method the depreciation expense is determined on the basis of the usage of asset. Once the company estimates the usage rate of the asset then the depreciation expense is calculated based on the usage rate.

Match the depreciation methods with each of the given characteristics.

    Blueprint Connection: Depreciation Methods Depreciation is the process of allocating the cost of an asset to expense over the asset's estimated useful life. The amount depreciated is the cost of the asset less the asset's expected residual value. An accelerated  depreciation method allocates larger amounts of depreciation expense to earlier periods of an asset’s life and smaller amounts of depreciation expense to later periods of an asset’s life. Straight-line   depreciation allocates an equal amount of the asset’s cost to depreciation expense for each year of the asset’s useful life. Units-of-production   depreciation is used primarily to depreciate machinery and allocates costs based on the actual use of the machine to produce product. While these methods allocate a different amount of depreciation expense to each year of an asset’s life, the total amount of depreciation expense recognized over the asset’s life is the same under either method.
